Manoj Prabhakar parts ways with CAN

By a Staff Reporter

Kathmandu – The head coach of the Nepal National Cricket team Manoj Prabhakar has parted ways with the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN).

The CAN on Thursday announced that it has accepted the decision of Manoj Prabhakar to step down from his position.

The former Indian all-rounder took over the responsibility to lead National Cricket Team in the first week of August following the departure of Pubudu Dassanayake.

Prabhakar’s resignation came after the team’s mediocre performance in Namibia tour belonging to ICC World Cup Cricket League 2. “CAN insisted Prabhakar resign from his position. Players, Manager, and management members have filed grievances against him which lead us to a conclusion that we shall part ways for the betterment of both the parties,” said CAN acting Secretary Prashant Bikram Malla.

National Cricket Team, under Prabhakar, won two bilateral series against Kenya and UAE. However, Nepal failed to win any of the ICC World Cup Cricket League 2 matches. All thanks to the rain, Nepal earned a point against Namibia in the first outing of the series. Moreover, Nepal lost both its match against Scotland and the second match against Namibia in its Tour to Namibia.
